New Co-director Named for 2013 Cherry Fest

Thanks to cooperation from the weather and dozens of volunteers, Jacksonport’s Cherry Fest once again met with success. Cherry Fest volunteers typically serve for multiple years before moving on to other projects. This year, several volunteers, including Joe and Sue Jarosh and Vicki Bley, have asked to pass the torch on to others.

Joe has long helped with setting up Cherry Fest and Sue, who spearheaded the creation of Cherry Fest, has overseen the preparation of cherry kolaches. Bley served as the Cheery Fest director or co-director for the past several years.

The new co-director of 2013 Cherry Fest is Darrel Birnschein; he joins Kandie Skippon for this fundraising project.
